Adding keyboard shortcuts for sending files to different programs [DONE]

Post by Thy Grand Voidinesss »

Is it possible to assign shortcuts CTRL+1, CTRL+2, CTRL+3 [and so on] a task of sending whatever items are selected to whatever program a user pre-chooses? And if needed with a command line parameter added?

I have a unified set of shortcuts in FreeCommander and Mp3tag- thus what is missing in my equation of daily operations is Everything providing me the same quick and convenient handling of files

Not easily.

It can be done with Custom Verbs.



I'll look into making this easier with custom open commands.

and any number of context menu entries

Those solutions are way above my level

So its a request?

It hard for me to understand what you are saying there. Maybe you should edit it a little


Thus I think I will wait hoping for our great developer to spend some time on this:
